When Jesus came down from the hill, large crowds followed him.
Then a man suffering from a dreaded skin disease came to him, knelt down before him, and said, "Sir, if you want to, you can make me clean." a3
Jesus reached out and touched him. "I do want to," he answered. "Be clean!" At once the man was healed of his disease.
Then Jesus said to him, "Listen! Don't tell anyone, but go straight to the priest and let him examine you; then in order to prove to everyone that you are cured, offer the sacrifice that Moses ordered." 15
When Jesus entered Capernaum, a Roman officer met him and begged for help:
"Sir, my servant is sick in bed at home, unable to move and suffering terribly."
